Key Challenges

  • Keeping cost down – The print marketplace is as competitive as ever, and price pressure continues to rise.
  • Delivering quality – Customers' expectations continue to rise with respect to the quality of their print products.
  • Quicker turnaround times – Customers expect most things to be done in a few days, not a few weeks.
  • Smaller run lengths – As jobs get smaller, inefficiencies in your print process become exposed.
  • More small jobs – With smaller run lengths, you need to push more jobs through your shop.
  • Multiple systems – Your workflow has evolved over time. It can be difficult to introduce a new system.
  • Operator skillset – As solutions become more complex, do you have the resources to properly run a new solution?
FreeFlow™ Core's automation toolset will remove costly manual prepress steps, reducing your costs and reducing the time it takes to get jobs through your shop. Free up your resources from repetitive tasks and move them to higher value jobs.
  • Automating your print processes reduces cost, reduces errors, and all the while delivers consistently higher quality output.
  • Integrating your hardware and software systems seamlessly with your printers will drive your productivity to the next level.
  • Simplify your workflow with a solution that uses an intuitive drag and drop interface to perform even complex operations.
